Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  I wonder if there was a tiny hole in the package 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@ather, I hadnโ€™t thought of that.  I didnโ€™t notice any serum on the masks that this one was sandwiched between but itโ€™s a possibility. ๐Ÿค” 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

This is off theme, but I just really wanted to try this one ๐Ÿ˜‰

OTZI Dough Therapy Pore Treatment Mask 3.38 oz/ 100 mL 

 

This white-colored, clay mask has a very interesting texture- sort of like a cross between dough and jelly. It is firm but also bouncy/jiggly at the same time. If you press your finger on top of it, it doesn't even make a dent, it just bounces back to its original form.

The scent is a little hard for me to explain - it was kind of a fresh scent that was maybe like a mix of clay and cornstarch? It was light enough that I could barely smell it while it was on my face.

I scooped a small chunk of it out, pressed it against my face and just smeared it all over. It smoothed down very nicely.

The directions say to leave it on for 5 minutes, but I left it on for more like 8. It didn't take long for it to dry - it was soft and flexible and not uncomfortable at all. Removal was easy and kind of turned into a milky consistency when I rinsed with warm water.

My face looked a little brighter and less dull, felt super soft and smooth and even had a bit of a glow. My skin did feel a touch dry, but for me that's to be expected with any kind of clay mask.

I've never used anything like this before, and I have to say, I really love it! It did everything it said it'd do! I can see this jar lasting a long time, but I'll definitely be repurchasing when I'm out!

@Shosh85 this sounds so intriguing. It looks like this includes Jobโ€™s tears, the seed and shell extract as well as the seed water, very interesting indeed! *into cart*

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  Hmmm, I didn't even notice that. I'm pretty happy I picked it up! It's a fun and unique mask! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85 the name sounds really interesting!! Thanks for sharing!! Glad you love it ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

Thanks @lmaster!! The name is what first got my attention ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85 @That sounds so interesting - thank you for sharing !!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Kim888  I love the uniqueness of it! It's one of the impulse buys I don't regret ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@Shosh85  Iโ€™m happy it worked out for you. Iโ€™ve been growing to love clay masks more lately. 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@ather  It was wonderful! It wasn't like a typical clay mask, and I think that, with the great results is why I loved it so much! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

That sounds like a really interesting mask, @Shosh85. That texture seems like it'd be fun to use, plus the results sound great!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@quspork  The unique texture and great results definitely surprised me! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

A bouncy / jiggly clay mask @Shosh85?!! That alone has piqued my curiosity! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿค” Those are some mighty nice results too! Did you happen to notice any detoxing / clarifying / unclogging pores action from the clay? 

Ummm, youโ€™re so on theme - X for Xanthan Gum! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@itsfi  The texture was nothing like I've ever experienced before! I love it! It has definitely made it into my list of top favorites!

Fortunately, my pores have always been in pretty good shape - but it did make my skin did look noticeably smoother. My face felt clean, but not stripped.

 

Oh, yes, Xanthan Gum. I always forget about that one ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

After seeing @PrettyPaintโ€™s Gudetama mask from Saturday, it was motivation to get mine posted, too-after all, it was her idea to begin with๐Ÿ˜‰

The short and sweet of this is that the Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask is a deliciously-scented, light citrus/fruity favorite of mine. The Crรจme Shop Tighter and Brighter was most definitely my mood last week; I wish I could have reclined in an egg chair all weekend!

Since I couldnโ€™t, I used this mask. My experience was very similar to @PrettyPaintโ€˜s. With this one, itโ€™s more about the cuteness factor than the fit/adherence. Despite that, I would use it all over again if I needed an easy smile at the end of the day.

Thank you so much for this theme, I had fun going through my masks determined to find something to match my mood๐Ÿ˜˜

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe - i love gudetama.

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@nuinui933 the whole idea of a lazy egg is amusing. Gudetama is great!

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe  that chair is so cool. I think I need one lol. Love the reclining egg! 

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

We could all use one, @ather! Looks like the perfect chair to me:)

Re: ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Œ Mask of the Week Challenge ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ’–

@eshoe, thereโ€™s just something about that lazy egg Gudetama that brings a smile to your face. Maybe you need to get the chair and see how it feels to mask while lounging in it. For science, of course. ๐Ÿ˜†
